October 2016

The Nuclear Culture Source Book serves as an excellent resource and introduction 
to nuclear culture as one of the most prominent themes within contemporary art 
and society, exploring the diverse ways in which post-Fukushima society has 
influenced artistic and cultural production. The book brings together 
contemporary art practices investigating the nuclear anthropocene, nuclear sites 
and materiality, along with important questions of radiological inheritance, 
nuclear modernity and the philosophical concept of radiation as a hyperobject.

Portway, Chim-Pom, Thomson & Craighead, Nick Crowe and Ian Rawlinson, Nina
